14 June, New Delhi: Officials said on Wednesday that the Law Commission of India is reviewing the identical Civil Code in the midst of a heated discussion about the necessity to adopt identical rules for all citizens of the nation.
Respondents have 30 days to submit their comments to the Law Commission. According to them, the Ministry of Law and Justice has sent the Uniform Civil Code to the 22nd Law Commission of India for review.
As part of its investigation of the Uniform Civil Code, the 21st Law Commission issued a public appeal and questionnaire on the topic on October 7, 2016, as well as subsequent public appeals/notices on March 19, March 27, and April 10, 2018. The number of those who responded was staggering.

An official has said that the “Reforms to Family Law” consultation document was published by the 21st Law Commission on August 31st, 2018.


“Since more than three years have elapsed from the date of issuance of the said Consultation Paper, bearing in mind the relevance and importance of the subject and also the various court orders on it, the 22nd Law Commission of India considered it expedient to deliberate afresh over the issue,” he said.

As a result, the 22nd Law Commission of India resolved to once again consult the general public and established religious institutions on the Uniform Civil Code.

“Those who are interested and willing may present their views within a period of 30 days from the date of Notice through the “click here” button or by email to membersecretary-lci[at]gov[dot]into the Law Commission of India,” the official said.

The government of Uttarakhand established a commission in May 2022 to investigate the policy’s execution within the state.

In May, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami said that the bulk of the work on the draught for the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) has been done and that the government-constituted committee would present its ideas by June 30.

In October 2022, Harsh Sanghavi, the home minister of Gujarat, announced the establishment of a commission to oversee UCC implementation throughout the state.

While some political leaders have spoken out in favour of a national uniformity of laws, the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has called this “an unconstitutional and anti-minorities move,” claiming that the “rhetoric” surrounding the UCC is nothing more than an attempt by the governments of Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, and the central government to divert attention away from inflation, the economy, and unemployment.

It is proposed in the Uniform Civil Code that people of different faiths, sexes, and orientations be treated the same under the law.

Article 44 of the Constitution mandates that the government of India make every effort to provide its inhabitants with a uniform civil code that applies across the country.

The BJP, should it win the Lok Sabha elections in 2019, has pledged to enact UCC into law.
